StaticWind commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

...Oh. So those are the rewards. Well, I already have some of those games, seeing as how they helped me reach platinum status in the first place. The rest of them are ones I don't care for or would have gotten already if I wanted 'em. I'll just get one of those large retail games and give it to a friend or something. I wish they had offered something unique instead. Ya'know, something the average consumer can't get.
You know, after about a year's worth of detailed surveys and registrations. Oh well. I wonder what the rewards will be next year.
And wow, look at all of the comments! o_O

The tournament was great! Oh geez. Axe's Pikachu kept me outta my chair! I get all hyped up just thinking about that match! :D
The end was pretty emotional. Sad to see a great commentator retire, but it definitely isn't goodbye forever.

"...he’s one of my best friends..."
I must have been living under a rock or something. I never knew. :P
It's nice to see their thoughts on the game, and I'm glad they're not as ridiculously dismissive as some that I've seen as of late.
In So Cal.? Sweet! I'll probably force myself to stop being lazy and go to one if it's not too far. I don't usually go to tournaments, so that needs to change.

StaticWind commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

@Cresartist Agreed. It's like how many say that video games cause violence.
If anything, I have never understood child pageants. I find them cringe-worthy...but aside from that, if something like that is allowed, then I don't see why an artistic medium, that uses characters that do not represent actual people, needs to be enforced as such.

StaticWind commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

The inclusion of these rules in anime, comics, and video games probably isn't necessary. Using Senran Kagura Burst, for example, it's set in a fictional world. A game such as that shouldn't encourage child abuse. There's a fine line that separates fiction from reality. It'd be best to take a moment and see that line, for people that do act on this sort of thing.
As far as its content goes with the whole nudity thing, I wouldn't say it's any form of child abuse. Ninja females with supernatural strengths =/= female children. The ideas of all of these scantily-dressed females and whatnot transition to a topic that can relate. As tasteless as I see way too many over-sexualized characters, there's no reason to limit one's creativity with such a law.
Now, actual child abuse images, of course, were rightfully removed.

StaticWind commented on Rumour: Mario Kart 8 DLC to Feature Expanded R...:

I'm not surprised at all that the images weren't real. However, I'd love it if they returned those two battle modes. I loved Bob-omb Blast to death in Double Dash. Shine Thief was a close second. Heck, give us actual Battle Arenas and I'll be even happier.

StaticWind commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

Voted for the first Mushroom Kingdom U stage. It looks like it might be viable in tournament play, and with how much of a Mario fan I am, and how beautiful New Super Mario Bros. U looks, I'm excited for that stage!
...And I reeeally want that Van Gogh-inspired swamp background to make it in. I love that one!

StaticWind commented on Ninterview: Taylor Davis Shares Her Musical Jo...:

Great interview! I really hope she gets even further with her awesome musical talents. I, in a way, can relate. Video game music is actually what got me into playing the piano in the 7th grade, and from there, I learned as much as I could by just using internet videos and midis. I really hope to make a career out of something I love as well, and music is just one of them! I'm definitely not an amazing musician myself, but I know I'll get there with enough knowledge and practice. :)
"Once I was able to start ignoring the negativity, I became a lot more independent and introspective because I stopped caring about what other people thought of me and focused on how I felt about myself. It helped me find real value in the people and activities that made me happy in life and to stop caring about the people who made fun of who I was and what I liked to do, and that was an incredibly empowering feeling...please just focus on what you love about yourself and what makes you happy in life and just forget about the people who try and bring you down."
I love this paragraph! Bullying is part of what made me who I am. I'm thankful that I've gone through it so often, because I now know what's best to think of myself. It's why I'm always so serious about that kind of stuff and why I don't let it step a foot in the presence of those I care for.
All in all, this is probably my favorite Ninterview. Splendid choice! ^^

StaticWind commented on Ike Joins the Battle in Super Smash Bros. for ...:

@R_Champ I see! I can imagine that wouldn't make Chrom fans very happy. Well, I guess at the end of the day, I'd be happy if the new FE rep has something very unique from them that sets them apart from the other two. It'd be a dream come true if there could be four reps (Chrom can be in and make room for a different wielder), but I guess three is fine.

StaticWind commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

Generally, I'm not sure. I'm not sure why, but while DLC sounds okay, something at the back of my head is telling me it may not suit Mario Kart.
If they do end up doing it, I'm sure it'll turn out fine. I-I wouldn't mind getting some Battle Arenas! :D

StaticWind commented on Ike Joins the Battle in Super Smash Bros. for ...:

Awesome! When I saw the news this morning, I couldn't tell you how happy I was. Ike is one of the many characters I use often in Brawl. I've always been so sure he'd get cut, so I prepared myself for disappointment, but look at this. He's back, and with his Radiant Dawn design! Sweet! :D
My last wish for Fire Emblem representation would probably be a magic wielder. I like Chrom, and I realize that it'd be odd if the main lord wasn't representing FE:A, but when I look back at the game, there were so many more interesting characters. I've always wanted Chrom in, but now I'm feeling that having another FE sword wielder wouldn't be all that exciting.

StaticWind commented on Become The UK's Best Mario Kart Family, Win Re...:

Nice! I'd love to enter one, but my family would probably suck at Mario Kart. Plus, I don't live in the UK. Those trophies do look awesome, though! I have no shelf space, but I can easily make some for Mario Kart trophies. :D
